When you see me in the grocery store, I’m usually heading straight into the baking isle.
Keeping my baking pantry stocked is a must. If I’m low on (every kind) of chocolate chips, I panic. (Same with butter… but that’s a whole other story.)
This time, I lingered along the isle and noticed some Lemon Meringue Mallow Bursts marshmallows.
I didn’t know what I was going to do with them. Yet.
I just had to have them. (I was just happy there was a selection of marshmallows at our one and only grocery store in the whole county.)
So, of course I made some Lemon Meringue Rice Krispie Treats.
I’m telling you, these are literally bursting with lemon!
Adding a little bit of white chocolate makes them even more divine. Just as I did with the White Chocolate Lemon Cookies.
So, making these are a breeze!
Melt your butter in a microwavable bowl.
Add the lemon marshmallows. Put back onto the microwave another 45 seconds.
I love the gooey-ness of melting marshmallows.
Stir the butter and melted marshmallows together. Get ready to add the cereal.
Stir it all together for more happiness. But wait, you’re not done yet.
White chocolate chips go in the marshmallow-y mixture.
Some may melt… and some may not. But, it’s all so delicious!
Put it all into a pan to set up.
While you’re waiting for this lemon creation to cool, melt the rest of the white chocolate chips.
Tip: Use a “double boil method”. A heat safe bowl on top of a pot of simmering water with only 1-2 inches of water in it. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water. Remember, chocolate is very sensitive. This way melts it very gently without really making the chocolate hot.
Dip the cut squares (bottoms) into the white chocolate. Set on wax paper.
Drizzle with the remaining white chocolate.
Then, sprinkle with some yellow jimmies.
This is as simple as it gets.
Enjoy, my friends!
- 5 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 (8 ounce) package Mallow Bursts Lemon Meringue
- 4 cups crispy cereal
- 1½ cups white chocolate chips, divided
- yellow jimmies/sprinkles (optional)
- Melt butter in a microwavable bowl.
- Add marshmallows and melt for 45 seconds, or until melted.
- Stir in the cereal until all combined.
- Add half of the white chocolate chips into the mixture and stir.
- Put into a 8×8 square baking dish. Set aside to cool.
- Melt the other half of the white chocolate chips with a double boil method.
- Cut the treats into squares and dip the bottoms into the white chocolate. Set on wax paper. Drizzle the rest of the white chocolate on top and sprinkle with yellow jimmies. (Optional.)

I couldn’t help but smile as I was reading this. I panic too whenever I’m low on baking items. I rather hoard them than to run out. haha! 😀 This is such a fancy rice krispie treat! 🙂 Any sweets with citrus gets my attention. Pinning! 🙂 Have a great Thursday Gloria, HUGS!

The baking aisle of the grocery store is my second home! And I know what you mean about freaking out about not being stocked with chocolate chips (yes, every kind!). I love lemon desserts and rice krispie treats. So you can only imagine how much I am freaking out over these! amazing Gloria!

Funny how the little things about chocolate chips mean a lot to us kind of gals! Justin knows I’m this way and automatically picks a bag or two up for me with out me asking. (=
I’ve not seen those lemon marshmallows, but this is the best use for them! I get nervous too when I feel I don’t have enough chocolate chips in my pantry! And I sort of hoard butter!

Tanya, I need a freezer just for the butter I buy when I make a pit stop at Costco every time…I’m glad I’m not the only one that hoards butter! (=
Annie @ Annie's Noms says
I’m exactly the same with running out of things!! If I have one bag of 5kg sugar open, I have to buy another one in case I run out and I’ve always got heaps of butter and flour in the house, it’s taking over! I get in trouble with my boyfriend over chocolate chips…. I’m a bit obsessed!!
These look delightful! I love rice krispie treats and I’ve never made lemon ones before! Although not sure we get lemon mallows here, our supermarkets aren’t brilliant at having loads of different flavoured things! I frequently feel sad when I see loads of Oreo flavours on Instagram and we only get normal and chocolate ones here! 🙁

I know how you feel, Annie. Most times, I have to order items online (King Arthur flour, my fave!) because my little market doesn’t carry the kind I need. I was even surprised they had room on the shelf for the lemon marshmallows! (=
Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes says
I’m on a huge lemon kick lately! Love these!

You’d love them, Ashley! (There’s even Key Lime marshmallows!) But, I prefer lemon over lime. (=

Andi @ The Weary Chef says
These are the fanciest rice crispy treats I’ve ever seen! They look wonderful. I buy butter at Costco 4 pounds at a time, but I have to be careful to get the regular sticks and not the 1 lb. blocks. I’ve been disappointed more than once when I get home and realize I have four huge bricks of cheese!
So funny! I have done the exact thing with the butter! I have to tell myself to focus when I grab the butter from there! (=

Love them and hope you’ll be sharing them at Best of the Weekend!! 😉 Hope you had a great Friday and a fun weekend ahead! Pinning!

Cindy, I was actually thinking of you when I made these! (AND, of your sore mouth!) Hope you’re feeling better soon! xo
I bet these even smelled good! I love lemon and white chocolate so together they can only be terrific! I saw this on Instagram when we were driving and I started to drool in the car! I love getting your postings!

These treats look delicious, I have been in the mood for rice krispie treats lately. Also, I absolutely always love the way you photograph your ingredients together. 🙂

I know exactly how you feel, if I’m low on any baking product, I panic!! Lol! These rice krispies look amazing!!

Jocelyn, I’m so glad I’m not the only one that goes into a panic when the chocolate chips are low! In fact, my husband needed the baking soda for something in the garage and I (lied) and told him I’m already out. Becz I’d forget to buy it when I did go to the store. So, he just went and bought his own box of baking soda. (hehe) Terrible of me!
Thank you!!!! I found this on pinterest while surfing and Guess its back to the store to buy the lemon marshmallows i passed up because i couldnt think what to make with them .
That is too funny! Did you end up making some then? Thanks for coming over to say hi! (I’ve been away for awhile, so I just received your comment.)

I’m not a white chocolate fan but, I bet these would be delicious dipped in dark chocolate too.
That would be so delicious too, Michelle! Dark chocolate is actually one of my favorite chocolates…besides white chocolate, of course! (=
I was so happy when I came across this recipe.. But sadly could not find the marshmallows in your recipe. I was desperate so got plain marshmallows , added about a tablespoon of lemon extract and made some merengue and used that to top them since I burnt the chocolate chips *whoops* but so awesome!!!!!! Turned out wonderful! Thank you
I’m glad I’m not the only one that can burn chocolate chips! I love how you created this treat with the lemon extract …yum! Thank you for the tip, Elizabeth. Because, I’m afraid it is just a seasonal item. I wish grocery stores would not do that to us. Years ago, I remember the Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips were only sold during the “baking season”. But, everyday in my house is baking season! This past year, I am able to buy the cinnamon chips all year long. Have you tried them yet? My favorite! Have a great weekend coming up!
Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly

back and aid others like you helped me.
